Though many Boothgoers falling outside Willow Smith‘s target audience of teen and preteen females were unsure how to deal with such off-the-charts swag coming from a 10-year-old girl, the Platinum-selling success of Whip My Hair made her hard to ignore—simply put, this young lady is on fire. Looking to keep the flame burning after a somewhat disappointing chart showing with 21st Century Girl, Smith returns to our pages with Fireball, single numero tres off her yet-unscheduled debut studio album. Stoopid Robots handle production, turning in an instrumental just as ridiculous and bombastic as the moniker would lead you to expect; over their stomp-along percussion and kazoo fanfare, Willow sing/raps her way through larger than-life verses, exhibiting a knack for dynamic delivery as she enthusiastically “toot[s her] own horn.” And who should show up on the back but Young Money heavyweight Nicki Minaj? The Harajuku Barbie proves a natural addition to the cut, heating things up (and slinging a few Hadoukens) in her PG-rated closing 16. Digging Willow’s latest effort? Debate away—and keep it locked for all the latest for the hip-pop fast-riser.
